Host a Community Meeting to Resist Trump

Join MoveOn, Working Families Party, and People's Action for a critical national day of action just days before the inauguration—on Sunday, January 15.

We'll organize community meetings across the country to talk about what resistance looks like on the local level and sketch out a plan to keep our communities safe, fight for our values, and resist the new administration every step of the way—including by organizing opposition to Trump's dangerous cabinet appointments.

Fill out this form right now to register your event.

Instructions for hosts:  

  • All events should be held on Sunday, January 15, with start times between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. local time.
  • Turnout for these events will likely be strong, so we recommend using a large home or a free meeting space like a public library or community center.
  • We will post the materials for your community meeting on or before January 9, and hold a national prep call for hosts and answer your questions on Wednesday, Jan 11 at 8 p.m. ET/7 CT/6 MT/5 PT.
  • The venue field is visible to the public and should indicate the general area the event is, or the name of the building, business or organization. Do not use the street addresses.
